On Saturday, February 10, Catholic Charities joined Faith in Action and nine other agencies at an Immigration Forum that took place at Divine Mercy Parish in Oakland.

The Catholic Charities immigration legal services team members provided a total of 180 consultations on legal matters ranging from visas, to residency, to citizenship. More than 350 people attended the event. In total, nine participating agencies provided information on school enrollment, consulates, and other social services.
